Program Features

Sacfit provides a whole bunch of great program features to assure you achieve your fitness goals in a safe, sensible, and fun way. Here are some facts about our club and program:

  • Our program has been running (and walking!) strong for eight years.
  • 99.995% success rate. Out of the 5,000+ we've trained, only 24 did not make their goal on the first try. This success rate is attributed to our safe and sensible training approach. Note: all of those 24 got their goal on their second attempt. We don't give up on you!
  • Train with your coach. No matter what credentials a coach has, if they don't train with you, then what's the point? All of our coaches train with their pace group for the entire workout. No other program offer this level of personal attention!
  • Make Friends Training Together. Each weekend, you, your coach, and your pace group of 10-15 teammates train together. This affords a great social and training atmosphere. So much so, we've had a number of marriages between members. So you never know who you might meet!
  • Fully stocked and staffed aid stations for our longer workouts. Tired of a lonely water jug as your "aid station?" In addition to our plethora of food and ice-cold beverages, our stations are theme-based. Nothing like an oasis of fun, food, and drink to keep you motivated!
  • Free family Spring Picnic breakfast. Free - 'nuff said!

Training Days

Our typical weekly training is a 4-day schedule:

  • Saturday group workout (supervised)
  • Monday easy workout (on your own)
  • Tuesday evening Stair or Track group workout (supervised)
  • Thursday evening Tempo group workout (supervised)
Note: For our advanced team members, we add an easy Wednesday workout.

So whether you're a beginner or veteran runner or walker, our 16-week half marathon will give you all the tools and training you need to assure you cross the finish line feeling strong and having fun, either to just finish or to improve your race time. 

And while we pride ourselves in providing great training programs, we are most proud of our reputation as being THE fun running and walking group! 

Why so fun? Well, one reason is our approach to training. We believe the best way to achieve any fitness goal, be it a half marathon, 5K or just getting out the door, is to provide creative and enjoyable training techniques in a non-intimidating, inspiring, and supportive environment. 

But the most important element is our coaches and members. We come from all types of backgrounds - from beginners to advanced and the young to young-at-heart. So whether you are a couch-potato, walker, casual jogger, or marathon veteran, you can count on finding a group that shares your abilities, interests, and goals.
